    The Flowerhorns are with 5 Convicts, 2 Green Severums and a Firemouth right now. If they grow with Convicts, they may be able to live with them. I just don't want to take the chance when they're bigger. And I would need to upgrade from my 75 gal

    The Flowerhorn babies do look like Jacks. They're actually a hybrid and grow the bump on their head, etc. Apparently, some adult Flowerhorns get spots on their sides that look like chinese writing and some of those have sold for hundreds of thousands of dollars. I dunno. They're cool fish.

    If I can get rid of the Oscars, I'll just keep the Flowerhorns in that tank.

    ok with the cichlids what other fish are they ok with?

    Also how big of a tank do they have to go into?

    And would there have to be the heat as well?

    The Convicts or Flowerhorns?

    The Flowerhorns need at least a 55 gal for one. The Convicts will only grow about 5-6", if that, and can live in quite a bit smaller tank.

    The Convicts are really aggressive when they're older and would only be able to live with other aggressive fish, especially if you have a breeding pair. The Flowerhorns are quite aggressive, too. If you have a big enough tank (like 75+ gal) you may be able to keep a Flowerhorn with other aggressive fish.

    And all tropical fish need heat.

    FYI, the Pink Convicts are pretty much just albino regular Convicts. And they are by far my favorite of all my fish. Very comical little guys...

    I can't guarantee the other fish will live once the Flowerhorn matures...but you're more than welcome to try, if you want...just be warned [img]/ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/lol.gif[/img] it may be a bloodbath.
